In the Finnish gas market shippers and traders are required to have an EIC-X party code (Energy Identification Coding, EIC). The code scheme is a premise for reliable and efficient data exchange between the market participants and the transmission system operators, and a basis for automated electronic data interchange. Finnish gas transmission system operator (TSO) acts as a Local Issuing Office (LIO) for gas market EIC-X party codes in Finland. An EIC Participant is responsible for the accuracy and completeness of the information it submits when applying for an EIC code. Once an EIC code is issued, the EIC Participant shall be responsible for the information provided in the EIC code and shall inform the LIO that issued the EIC Code of any changes in the EIC information.
